When it comes to the evening tipple, no need for a crystal goblet (especially if the vintage on offer is a go-to everyday table wine). A simple, sturdy, chuck-in-the-dishwasher, double-as-water-glass vessel does the trick. Here’s a roundup of our favorites:
Above: Made in France (and virtually indestructible), the Gigogne Glass by Duralex is available as a set of 12 for $45 at Food52. Above: A set of 4 Iittala Lempi Glasses is $50 at Finnish Design Shop. Above: The Vincent van Duysen Clear Wine Glass is $60 at March.
